I always loved the Armored Valkyrie-taking something that powerful and adding that much armor and weaponry to it always made sense to me as a kid!

Thanks for sharing the photos. It looks great to me.

Wow! I love that Mac II in the background!

Any suggestions for the best source for these in the States as they become available?

I guess in the United States Amazon is a good choice for these items.

As I'm from Mexico* usually I order these japanese figures from stores like AmiAmi, HLJ (in these stores they have great discounts especially AmiAmi) or Nippon-Yasan (if it is a exclusive item) when Tamashii Nations (http://tamashii.jp/?lmode=en) warn that they will open the pre-orders at a certain date.

*In my case I get cheaper express delivery from Japan that from the United States.

Thanks for the ideas. I'll look at amazon and some of the others to see what's best.

Those look awesome, and I see a VF-1S there, too! I'll have to check Midtown Comics... I don't expect the prices to be very accommodating, though.

Is this still available anywhere!?

No. Due their popularity in Orient the pre-orders of the figures of this line only last minutes.

In February I suggest you check at the store Nippon-Yasan (https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/14025-hi-metal-r-regult.html) when it becomes available they add a small price increase which rises as time passes.
